Show Me Love (Skrillex remix)
An album song gets a great rework and a new lease of life.
Last year’s Electric Picnic mixtape kicked off with a track from one of my favourite bands Hundred Waters. ‘Show Me Love’ is a short piece of music that kicks off their second album The Moon Rang Like A Bell. It was later given a solo version by singer Nicole Miglis.
Hundred Waters released their music on Skrillex’s OWSLA label so a remix from him isn’t a huge surprise. What is, is that he brought together Chance The Rapper, Robin Hannibal of Rhye & Moses Sumney in on the act too and made a video featuring most of them. You can get the track for download at ShowMe.Love. This is Skrillex at his most tasteful, drawing the best of the source material and collaborators and weaving it with the band’s involvement.

The band’s debut album, Light Upon the Lake is due out June 3rd on Secretly Canadian and post-SXSW, Whitney have shared ‘Golden Days’, a more upbeat falsetto classic rock track that falls somewhere between the two main members associated bands – Max Kakacek (ex-Smith Westerns) and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich (ex-Unknown Mortal Orchestra).
